taken to court. but the f.b.i. shot down claims that anyone was in custody, and it issued a statement that said, in part: the bureau also put off an afternoon briefing, citing a bomb scare that forced everybody out of the courthouse. earlier, the f.b.i. released photos of remnants of the bombs made out of pressure cookers and the black nylon bags that concealed them. one of the pressure cooker lids was catapulted to a nearby rooftop. and investigators kept sifting the crime scene for more clues today. all three people killed in the bombings have now been identified-- eight-year old martin richard, 29-year-old krystle campbell and lu lingzi, a chinese graduate student at boston university. last night, neighbors and friends of martin richard and his family held a candlelight vigil near a baseball diamond and field where he used to play. >> everybody knows them, everybody loves them. it's just unthinkable, you know, anybody's little boy, was our little boy. >> reporter: boston common was the site of another vigil last night. several hundred turned out to sing and pay tribute to those k

john brennan and f.b.i. director robert mueller, head by the house intelligence committee. it's an hour and 45 minutes. >> bring the committee to order. we will get our opening statements under way to get to our distinguished panelists and statements. i want to welcome national intelligence director james clapper, cia director john brennan. director of defense intelligence agency, michael flynn and director of the f.b.i., robert mueller. for the yearly open hearing before the house intelligence committee. as a reminder to all members, we're in open session and we should be careful not to discuss classified matters. whether he have a closed session immediately following this session to address sensitive matters. late our t to congrat committee yesterday, 18-2 vote on the cyber security information sharing bill we thought was a great start this morning because of changes made in the bill received the endorsement of tech net, largest high-tech association, association with the largest number of high-tech committees came in this morning. we're pleased with that and looking forward to movin
with their financial affairs, the v.a. sends their name to the f.b.i. and they go on a nics list. and all of a sudden that takes away their second amendment right to own a gun. and it says that be in that lives in that house -- so it could be a spouse, it could be a child, it could be an adult child, for that fact -- also cannot own a firearm because the -- the -- the ruling says there can't be a firearm in th the -- in the -- in the residence. clearly, an appropriate determination if a veteran or any other american is found to be a harm to themselves or has a -- a mental disability, that we would all agree should disqualify them from gun ownership. now, let me say for the purposes of my colleagues and for the american people, this is not the standard that we currently apply at the veterans administration. we look at a veteran who's served his country and we say, you can't balance your checkbook so we're going to assign a fiduciary to you to balance your checkbook. you can't own a firearm. think about this. the fiduciary may be the spouse and all of a sudden that name goes to the nics list. why? beca
will say both the f.b.i. and the department of defense, specifically d.o.d., for that matter all of us have a role to play in providing that policymakers, operators, etc. i also completely agree with i think underlying tenet of the bill that you passed yesterday, which recognizes the importance of partnership between the government. we certainly collectively cannot do it all. and we do need the help and assistance and cooperation of the civil sector. and so that's -- i guess that's all i'd say to answer the question. >> if each of you could just talk a little bit about the greatest cyberthreats from your perspectives. is it foreign governments? is it it terrorists? is it criminals? where is the biggest threat? >> let me start and others can contribute. any time you're assessing threat, there are obviously two dimensions. one is the capability, and the other dimension is intent. certainly from a capability standpoint in terms of ability --reek damage to the country wreak damage to the country, we are more concerned with the potential of the nation state, and obviously, we have called this ou
came in was call director mueller at the f.b.i. to get an update on this. because obviously we -- there no familiar in america -- family in america that wants justice than the state department family, believe me. so i wanted to know where we are. and i think we are making progress. now, there's video as you-all know. we have identified people. and they are building a case. we are going through the tedious, laborious, and very difficult process of gaining evidence from the part of the country which is dangerous. and working in a place where the standards are different and the expectations are different. we are working through that. but i can guarantee you this. i think all of you know because of bob mueller's service, and peoplera years that passed a law to allow him to serve, there is no more dedicated or capable leader of the f.b.i. and there is nobody more committed to do this. i have confidence in that. i also have confidence in something else. this president of the united states made it clear once before that he would do what was necessary to bring somebody to justice. and
in a boston suburb. a person of interest is being i questioned by the f.b.i.. we'll have the breaking details. >> treating the wounded as boston emergency rooms quicklyuk filled with bombing victims, a new race began to save lives. our fox medical team will join us live to discuss the wide variety of injuries and why some of those hurt may not yet know it. good morning, i'm tony perkins.r >> i'm wisdom martin in for allison. let's talk about weather. >>talk tucker barnes joins withs look at what happening acrossnig the region.egio >> cloudy yesterday.terd temperatures not out the 60sday. we're starting with clouds, hoping we're going to seeng w breakings, get sunshine and thaa allows them to warm up to the t low 70's today. spring-like weather. somebody asked me to describe it. ask i said springy. >> springy? >> works but okay.

adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia. but those records were never transmitted to the f.b.i. to be included in a background check. and we know that the shooter in tucson fail a drug test -- failed a drug test, a disqualifying fact for somebody to be able to legally purchase firearms given a background check, but that information was never transmitted to the f.b.i., and so the few son shooter was not -- and so the tucson shooter was not prevented from buying weapons, even though he should have been disqualified if the background check system had been working the way it should. i believe the most appropriate response to the recent mass shootings tshootings is to maket our current laws involving mental illness, drug use, mental health adjudications are enforced more aggressively and more efficiently. but, at the same time, while we're trying to find a solution to these problems and not just engage in meaningless symbolism, we should not be making it harder for law-abiding citizens to exercise their constitutional rights under the second amendment. we can and we should embrace r
said the f.b.i. is investigating this as an act of terrorism and the full force of the federal government will support the response and the federal investigation. there is no current evidence that the attack was part of a broader plot. but out of caution, we don't to keep in place enhanced security measures seen and unseen with coordination of state and local partners. we urge the american people to remain vigil legend and report any signs of suspicious activity to local law enforcement. we thank the people of boston for their response. we stand in solidarity with them and with everyone who has been making sure that the response, the recovery, and the investigation continue full force. beyond that, mr. chairman, i should not say anything in an unclassified setting except to reassure the committee that d.h.s. is put in full force into providing the f.b.i. with any and all assistance it requires in addition doing a number of other things with the city of boston. >> thank you. >> as you know, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the d.h.s., the largest creation of federal gover
to that apartment in revere that f.b.i., police, and other federal agents raided that home, but we still don't know the connection. of course as with everything involved in this investigation, details are still sketchy and still fluid, very unfoaldzing at this hour. the blasts have shaken bostonians and many around the world. most major cities including the district are now on heightened alert. cbs is reporting several other bombs have been identified throughout the city, but thankfully they did not detonate. police stress they do not have any suspects in custody but are questioning, quote, many people. we are hearing there is surveillance video showing a man with what appears to be to backpacks in the boylston street area just moments before the explosions. >> police and medical personnel from across the region have sent dozens, maybe even hundreds of volunteers to help us here in boston. that's what americans do in times of crisis. we come together and we help one another. moments like these terrible as they are don't show our weakness. they show our strength. >> we still do not know who did this
, former f.b.i. agent, mr. rogers of michigan. such time as he may consume. the chair: the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. rogers: thank you for your work on this. last year you expressed strong reservations about certain privacy protections and you were willing to sit down and work with us to try to find and make sure he we sent that very clear message about protecting privacy in this bill, and i thought the language was excellent and added to that purpose. it is -- it really does prevent any information from being -- in the bill from being misused by a company for anything other than the bill's strictly defined cybersecurity purpose, but this bill adds an important clarification, this amendment, to make congress' intent absolutely clear. to try again to assure the american public this is about security while protecting civil liberties. i urge my colleagues to support this amendment. . barton: reclaiming my time want to thank my staff. also i want to thank the chairman and the ranking member, see nothing other speakers, i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentl
that the f.b.i. maintains, depends on the states sending information to the f.b.i. that they could use to screen out gun buyers. as a matter of fact, the shooter at the virginia tech had been adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia, but that information was never forwarded to the f.b.i. to be used on a background check. so he could therefore purchase weapons without a hit occurring on the nics background check system. after 2008, we passed legislation encourage the states, trying to incentivize them to send the information to the f.b.i. so that wouldn't happen again. and we know from the general accountability of course, the g.a.o., that the report of compliance with that law is dismal indeed. many states just simply haven't done it. i believe there are things we can do to further incentivize the states to send that information so that the background check system maintained by the f.b.i. actually works to preclude shooters like the virginia tech shooter from legally buying weapons because there would be a hit on the background check system, and he would be stopped from that s
